As Covid-19 impacts major work trends, how will organisations recover?
December 3 @ 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM CST
Join Fons and his colleague Jérôme Dumetz as they present research on how the dilemmas caused by COVID-19 are shared amongst all human beings, but through culturally-defined reconciliation approaches. Find out what leads to sustainable results in our fight against this virus in terms of excess deaths and organizational performance.
The research presented in this session is based on individual perceptions on how one’s own society and the organizations in which they work, cope with specific issues such as: compliance to flexibility, digital vs analog, and individual accountability to group solidarity. The questions investigate opposing approaches to certain dilemmas COVID-19 has surfaced.
